votes and a minority of republicans. >> and basically hand power to nancy pelosi. >> again. that has been the precedent. >> governor, a lot of talk -- there's been a lot of talk about defense cuts, which certainly are half of the sequester. there are other programs being cut. 9.4% to unemployment benefits, 600,000 children and women lose food aid, 10,000 teachers fired. they're trying to emerge from the rock of being unsympathetic to the working poor, the middle class. you have these sequester cuts take place that undermines any argument. >> i depart from democratic orthodoxy in this one. i so bad want to cut all the fat out of the pentagon that i'm willing to do this. it's terrible. i hope we can restore some of the things. 2% medicaid cuts don't have any effect on patient care whatsoever. it is true that there are some bad cuts in there from a democratic point of view. we are never again going to get a chance to cut the pentagon back from where it's been. pentagon hasn't had any significant cuts for 30 years. a lot of money that's going to be cut is money that was not asked for but
. and that you did not throw the games. i want to congratulate and thank nancy pelosi for her tireless efforts in the last election cycle and all of her leadership. thank you, joe kelly, my fellow new yorker. i understand she had to leave, but i was always reassured to see her on television when i was worried about the outcome. i want to thank steve israel, who i think has been one of the most thoughtful people in the house and who proved once again that if you really want to be successful in the long run in this business, you have to be good politics and policy. you have to think about what we're going to do and how will affect people. i have the honor of campaigning for a lot of you in the last election. i am very excited about the new members. [applause] not only because if i were a member of this caucus, i would be in the minority, which i think is a good thing, but because the diversity extends far beyond the categories visible to the eye or that you can put in an adjective. there's so much difference here in terms of life experience and knowledge and understanding the various aspects of
with you on this one. i am sizing up from speaker boehner and nancy pelosi. the language and the tone and how do you assess where things were 23 days out? >> right. you would be hard pressed to find a member who wants the sequester to go through. in the defense industry with representative rooney and that's a big industry in florida. no one wants this to happen, but when you look at the alternatives, house republicans are not very optimistic that they can feel comfortable voting for given the president only wants to have a package that includes spending increases or tax hikes. >> let me play what was said regarding the tax revenue idea. let's take a listen, please. >> his first answer to everything is new taxes. when you think about it, what happened in january? he got $600 billion in new revenue with the spending cuts and now again he wants to raise taxes. it's time for us to cut spending. >> combine that with what boehner said. the tax question has been resolved or answered. how do you reply to the republican who is said the democrats are trying to get more of your money to solve a
? this is government intervention by the republicans before they handed the gavel to nancy pelosi. and this is what they stuck the workers with. they want to destroy the post office because they want to privatize everything. today i guess you can say is chapter one, where is the banner, mission accomplished for the republican destruction of the middle class in this country. now, congressman darrell issa, who he just loves the news. he called it common sense-sense reform. of course it's common sense to darrell issa. he has already proposed a bill to put more government regulations on the post office. issa wants to restructure the postal service by capping the growth of the workforce and cutting benefits and services. cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, cut your way into a profit. issa has no problem leading the charge here, folks, because he's got a lot of money from one of the postal service's main competitors, you got it, ups. fedex has got a hand in this too, by the way. they're also a big contributor to the cause. they gave almost twice as much to republicans than democrats last year in the congress.
at all from john boehner, the house speaker. nancy pelosi does not own a gun. host: what about the chairman of the house judiciary and senate judiciary committees? the legislation is going to go to them. caller: that is one of the most interesting ones. senator leahy is a gun owner, but he is also a very strong advocate for gun control. he will be one of the key points in the debate -- he will be delivering one of the key points in the debate. their committees are likely to be the first out the door with legislation. there will be interesting things coming from some unlikely he, coming from vermont, who lives in a state where gun ownership is not all that unusual. it will be interesting to see if he can thread the needle between a healthy respect for guns and a healthy concern for guns and gun safety. i think that he will be a very interesting player to watch. host: let me conclude by asking how you interpreted the president's remarks yesterday in minneapolis. fantasizing universal background checks but briefly talking about the assault rifles ban. what does that mean for passa
trophy back home. i want to say our leader, nancy pelosi, who is homegrown baltimore, she is now a 49ers fan, but she did accept a defeat with her regular class and dignity. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. for what purpose does the gentlelady from california seek recognition? >> to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady is recognized. ms. pelosi: i rise to congratulate -- i was going to call him -- congressman rupp ersberger and other members of the maryland delegation, more importantly, join them in congratulating the ravens on a -- they beat a mighty champion at the super bowl. as a proud 49ers fan who grew up on johnny unitas and baltimore and going to the games as a teenager and raving to my kids on joe montana and steve young, you can imagine how exciting this game was for me. but i think you quoted, mr. rupp ersberger, you quoted coach harbaugh. i will quote him in another way. they asked him after the game, was it hard coaching against your very own brother in the super bowl? he said it wa
